A car-free downtown is utopia fiction at this time for Hamilton.

(as much as I like Copahagen -- and wish we had a 'tourist bike district' in Hamilton that's fully Copahagenized).

Let's start small. We begin with car-free International Village for 4 blocks when LRT arrives. Mini Queens Quay treatment. Four SoBi stations, 2 LRT stations, dedicated bike lanes, nice wider pedestrian walk area, landscaping. Baby step. Circa 2024.

We need to make sure that it's done in a way that businesses actually improve, not get worse -- as we are in a city state where adjustments -- delicately speaking -- are rather delicate (car-owner in me heavily arguing with the bike-owner in me, in a mental fist fight -- ha!)
